Human augmentation systems or human 2.0 refer to technologies that enhance human capability and productivity by developing cognitive and physical improvements as an integral part of the body. Human augmentation systems span several technical fields such as experimental psychology, artificial intelligence, body computer interaction, and control systems. Example of human augmentation systems are prosthetics that can exceed the highest natural human performance.
Human Augmentation Systems Market: Drivers and Restraints
The rising advancements in technology such as artificial intelligence, material, computer systems, implants, 3D, and machine learning is the prime driver of the human augmentation systems market. The development of artificial intelligence which can mimic human functions such as learning and problem-solving is stimulating a large market. The growing capacity and capability of computer data processing and relative success of systems such as Amazon’s Alexa, Tesla’s auto-pilot feature, which rely on deep learning neural networks, a subfield of artificial intelligence are generating market enthusiasm. The high profitability and attractive economics of human augmentation systems are generating large research interest in human augmentation systems. Advancements in material technology such as lightweight but strong fibers, plastics, sensor technology, and electronics and related fields such as Nanotechnology is generating possibilities for the human augmentation systems market. Exponentially data availability, development of cloud, advances in hardware capabilities, growing connectivity and device capabilities, and the advent of the internet of Things (IoT) are playing a positive role in the human augmentation systems market.
However, the constraints such as high cost of development, lack of experimental validation, and the nascent stage of the technology located on the boundaries of science fiction and reality are hampering the human augmentation systems market. Ethical issues such as possible negative externalities and environmental issues are also restricting the market. Concerns social and economic inequality owing to wealthy individuals benefiting and disadvantaging poor people is another barrier that has to be mitigated. The large risk and prohibitive investment needed for developing such technologies coupled with the immense social impact may also hinder the market. In addition, the technologies should be robust to hacking. Concerns of identity and information security have also been raised.
